The Heroines Collection celebrates iconic women drawn from British literature and history across the centuries, from the Regency period of the 1780s onwards to the roaring 1920s. Royal Doultons sensitive designs capture both the spirit of each young woman and the typical costumes of the age.
Emma is inspired by the heroine of the novel of the same name, by author Jane Austen, which was published in 1815. Headstrong, beautiful and rich, Emma was typical of upper class women of the period. In an age when marriage secured social standing, the novel explores Emmas attempts at matchmaking amongst her circle of friends. Austens sense of humor, social manners and keen observation of the hum-drum of daily life in a small town has made the book one of her most loved works. This Royal Doulton figure captures all the beauty and strength of this beloved character.
